-fire, the u.s. is trying to use every diplomatic contact it has from mohamed morsi, the president of egypt, to the prime minister of turkey, prime minister erdogan to get the cease-fire. i think that the interesting question, the one that really -- the administration would love to focus on in the next few weeks is how do you get to a more stable situation in gaza where israel doesn't have to periodically take out heavy weapons and threaten the ground assault. we don't know yet whether that will happen. and people are talking about lots of possibilities. again, the central change that would be most beneficial would be if the new egyptian government decided to really get involved and in effect take ownership of the problems in gaza as the closest backer, supporter, of hamas. and if that happened, you'd have a quite different situation and one that potentially would be a lot better for israel. >> rose: and where are the -- where are the turks and where are the emir of qatar on this issue? >> i think both the turks and the qatarrys are supportive in general but the people with real leverage ar
for power by mohammed morsi. many saying he's acting like a modern day pharaoh. a big republican turns his back on the grover norquist tax pledge. is the gop preparing to give in to the president? is and thousands of people packing into stores today. watch your wallet. we'll tell you how the shopping season is really adding up. let's go "outfront." >>> good evening. i'm tom foreman. egypt erupts. thousands of angry egyptians have been protesting in opposition to a controversial power grabby egypt's president. at least 80 people have been injured and one killed in clashes with police who fired tear gas into the crowds. the unrest began after he issued a series of orders which allow him to run the country unchecked until a new constitution is written. morsi says his actions are meant to speed up reform and achieve political and social stability. >> translator: i have said beforened i repeat again, that i would never use a legislation against individuals, parties, men, women or muslims or christians for personal gains and to settle scores. >> now, this is all very problematic for the white ho
in gaza today. a planned cease-fire for the visit never materialized while president mohamed morsi made it clear whose side egypt is on. >> translator: we support the people of gaza. we are with them in their trenches. what hurts them hurts us. and the blood that flows from their children is our blood too. >> so most of the west, including the united states sides with israel. a nation now on the brink of staging a ground assault. israel's deputy foreign minister told cnn this morning that would trigger that move. >> if we will see in the next 24, 36 hours more rockets, launched at us, i think that would be the trigger. >> ben wedeman joins me now from the israel/gaza border. what are you seeing and hearing there now? >> reporter: it is a bit surreal here. we're in the city's marina right next to the yoko sushi restaurant. as you can see, there are people out, having dinner. seemingly to be living a normal life. but the owner of this restaurant did tell us just an hour ago they heard the air raid sirens and in fact just a moment ago we saw in this screen with israeli television that in b
. certainly, egypt has a hand for mohammed morsi and his disastrous economic policy. but what it has done is taken the nuclear issue off of the table. let's face it, iran has been at war for over 33 years. they conducted another act of war just a week or so ago when they fired an unmanned drone. as usual, we did not come forth to meet the challenge. lou: thank you very much. as you point out, the national media and in this context of the context between israel and hamas, taking note of the president's agenda and the absence of china on this specific event. admiral, we always appreciate talking to you. lou: joining us now is congressman louie gohmert. he was just reelected to a fifth term and he served previously as chief justice. great to have you with us, congressman. >> it's always good to be with you. lou: the speaker making it clear that very positively, potential accommodation if terms are met. that is pretty positive stuff, don't you think? >> well, it is positive. but there is a lot of pressure right now, and of course, the pressure is what can be used. this is the time to be bold.
read a verse from the koran and later egypt's president mohammed morsi gave a fiery speech in support of the palestinian people on state tv. listen. >> we support the people of gaza. what hurts them, hurts us. >> hate and violence between the israelis and palestinians was sparked by this. israel's assassination of hamas's military chief on wednesday. an assassination that israel called necessary because of increased rocket attacks from gaza into israel the last several weeks. our senior international correspondent ben wiederman has been covering the middle east. you've been covering it for decades now. when you see israel moving hundreds of troops to the border of israel and gaza and saying it's going to call up 16,000 more reservists, what does that sound like they're preparing for? >> certainly would case that they're preparing for a ground invasion of gaza. in fact, this is very similar to what happened in the 2008, 2009 fight between hamas and israel. israel for the first few days pounded targets around gaza, and then sent in the troops. certainly, i mean, if you listen, for insta
expect? the people will be poor. >> maybe the position of egypt and today president mohammed morsi said this? >> translator: we are with them, what hurts us and the blood that flows from their children is our blood, too opinion. >> what did you make of that? >> we preferred to look at egyptian deeds rather than words. egypt has played a constructive role in the past in mediating cease-fires with gaza and we hope that the egyptians will continue to fulfill a constructive role in the future. >> you must have been disconcerted by the tone of president morsi's rhetoric there. >> again, we prefer to look at the egyptian deeds and they will play a constructive role in helping convince them to stop firing these thousands of rockets at our civilians. >> is your intention at the same time to continue targeting hamas leaders and to continue, if you can, killing them? >> well, we'll take any measures necessary to stop the aggression against the civilians and we're taking immense precautions not to hurt palestinian civilians. our planes have carried out hundreds of attacks and the number of palesti
in the days ahead. president obama also spoke last night with egypt president mohamed morsi about working together to preserve peace and security in the region. tension between israel and egypt's new islamist government has increased since the attacks with egypt recalling its ambassador to israel in protest. richard haass, also an emergency meeting of the u.n. security council last night. sift through this for us. how big is this? how significant is this in the middle east right now? >> well, it's big for lots of reasons, because it's not happening in isolation. one is you have the largest military clashes between israel and hamas in, what, four year now, and it's not going to stop. at times it doesn't matter in the middle east exactly why things begin. over the last few months there have been hundreds of rocket attacks, now this, then retaliation. it just happens. second of all, it's happening in the absence of anything political. there's no dialogue going on whatsoever between israelis and palestinians. this can't substitute for this. thirdly, egyptians withdrew their ambassador. since
of the blame, mohamed morsi appears to lay some blame on the israelis. is he torn with his fellow islamists and the need to maintain the treaty obligations with israel? >> martin, if he isn't yet, he could be soon, and that's, of course, the real danger here. if this thing goes on just for a short time, then maybe we wind up okay. but if it goes on for days or weeks, like the 2008-2009 war that ambassador ginsberg referred to, then i think all bets are off as to just how long the egyptian regime can really sustain this stance of sort of being between the two. you know, in a broader sense, of course, the cease-fire that hamas had respected for a number of years never reflected a fundamental strategic change by hamas. it was more a temporary recognition that fighting the what i they had been before wasn't doing them any good. on the other hand in their own eyes, the cease-fire isn't doing them any good either. and so i think they're willing to maybe, as mark ginsberg said, maybe, you know, roll the dice a little, hope with the morsi government in place, maybe things can be different and maybe
is this that mohammed morsi will be a source for good. >> clearly they have a right to defend themselves, and they have to protect their citizens. we have to remember the united states it's as if washington d.c. was being attacked from the state of maryland. it's very, very serious what's happening there. i think as far as the arab spring, clearly the environment has changed, and i think the united states now is looking to morsi so look to hamas to get them to stop shooting. hopefully you can take advantage of the negative situation and start talking about peace. >> president morsi has his own problems at home too in terms of trying to be tough on hamas, which, after all, is part of the muslim brotherhood and the palestinians. do you think he can be helpful? has he been helpful? >> i don't know that he has. clearly we've benefitted from almost 40 years now of having peace partners between israel and egypt even though the egyptian government never told the people of egypt how important this was to maintain this peaceful relationship, and we don't have that right now. i think the prime minister of egypt
us new leadership in egypt. how scary is this at this point, how confident that mohammed morsi will be a force for good calming this down? >> clearly israel has a right to defend themself and they have to do what they have to do to protect their citizens. we have to remember in the united states it's as if washington d.c. was being attacked from the state of maryland. it's very, very serious what's happening there. i think as far as the arab spring, clearly the environment has changed, and i think the united states now is looking to morsi to use his influence with hamas to get them to stop shooting the miss independence. hopefully you can take advantage of the negative situation and start talking about peace. history shows that's unlikely at this point, but israel has to stand, protect their citizens at all costs, and you cannot continue to have these rockets sent in. >> president morsi has his own problems at home too in terms of trying to be tough on hamas, which, after all, is part of the muslim brotherhood and the palestinians. do you think he can be helpful? has he been he

also in egypt, cairo, tear gas had to be used when critics accuse president mohammed morsi. and the muslim pre brotherhood of monopolizing power and one little to bring real reform. prominent democracy advocate warrants that clashes lead to the military stepping and he also calls the egypt's president " the new pharaoh " opposition groups and government supporters have called for competing rallies on tuesday. your forecast, next. >> we are seeing this live look. there are even fog advisory, please be extra careful. chun doo? >> good morning. this is from our mt. tam. >> janu -- >> we are respecting some afternoon sun shines. but that is expected to return as marty mentioned a dense fog advisory for the north bay. 4:09 a.m. and also the gulf. that will last longer around 10:00 a.m. and allow yourself extra time. it will mainly be along the bayshore. for this afternoon it will clear out with a sunny afternoon but not that long. 5:00 p.m., it will press and along the san mateo coast. and even overnight. for those of you headed out as to going to the airport? there are delays a
by egyptian president mohammed morsi. cnn's reza sayah is reporting from cairo. >> reporter: dana, the demonstrations here in egypt are starting to spread to places outside of cairo. according to the interior ministry. protesters tried to attack the offices of the muslim brotherhood in the northern city. that's when muslim brotherhood supporters fought back. a number of injuries and arrests there, but the heart of the protests are still here in tahrir square. i'm going to step aside to give you a live look at what tahrir square looks like right now. a few thousand people here. they say they're determined to stay here until mr. morsi rescinds his controversial decrees. those are the peaceful protesters, and the arteries leading m tahrir. we've had some clashes. they seem to be teenagers, young men. it's hard to say if they're out here fighting for democracy or they're out here looking for trouble. in the meantime, opposing factions to mr. morsi are mobilizing to add pressure on him. on saturday a judge's group calling for an all-out judges strike, and also a one million man protest
have had this agreement and then in place for years. once mohammed morsi took over as the president, and he was for the muslim brotherhood, many started to question if you will honor that agreement. it is critical to peace in the middle east. your thoughts now that they are getting involved to some extent? >> first to welcome the peace agreement between israel and egypt is for the mutual interest. i think it is the bedrock of stability in this region. it is important that we really keep that in mind and any move on the egyptian side to try to help out in this situation would be looked upon favorably. but first and foremost responsibility for any government is its citizens. we cannot continue with a situation like that. hamas, in a sense, has turned from the whole region. they are really the enemies of peace and we should really try to work together to make sure that the military infrastructure is weekend to such a manner that we will be able to sit down with moderate palestinians in order to achieve a better understanding and peace. megyn: you have hamas and gaza and iran, sir, than
, confident that the egyptian president mohamed morsi can deliver right now? >> reporter: i've been told by one senior administration official that they are confident. that they feel like egypt has some skin in the game and really does not want to see this escalate. but the thing is looking to for instance to september this official told me they feel like egypt has come through on small tests. when more security w at the embassy in september because of protests there, egypt came through. of course that's on a very small scale, wolf. and the thing is this post-mubarak era, the equation is very different. the u.s. has somewhat of a relationship with the muslim brotherhood ruling egypt, but it is largely untested in a big way at this point. so this is really seen as the big test. there is a bit of a question mark, but yes, i'm told that they are confident that for now egypt can help them. >> let's see if they can. brianna keilar over at the white house. thanks. let's bring in our chief white house correspondent john king. the president's in a tough position right now whachlt can he effectiv
prison. an update on the middle east, egyptian president mohammed morsi speaking to reporters earlier says israel's aggression against gaza will end today. he did not provide any evidence to support his prediction that an end to the week-long offensive against the gaza is imminent, only saying negotiations between israel and gaza hamas rulers will yield positive results during the coming hours. he did not elaborate. his comments carried by the egypt official news agency tass as international diplomatic efforts to end the fighting picked up pace today with the scheduled arrival later of u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> how does one adequately express his feelings about a special friend? when that friend is also a world icon, and national hero of unimaginable proportions, and a legend whose name will live in history long after all here today have been forgotten? fate looked down kindly on us when she chose neil armstrong to be the first venture to another world and to have the opportunity to look back from space at the b
.s. and also across much of the western world. additionally, she knows that egyptian president mohammed morsi, with whom she is meeting right now, is under tremendous political pressure at home because he is a member of the muslim brotherhood, which is closely aligned with hamas. he can't be seen at home as giving away too much for the israelis -- to the israelis, i should say. the israelis for their part want a long-term peace, not short-term cease fire. here is netanyahu. >> now, if there is a possibility of achieving a long-term solution to this problem through diplomatic means, we'd prefer that. but if not, i'm sure you understand that israel will have to take whatever action is necessary to defend its people. >> secretary clinton for her part standing steadfast with israel. here she is. >> president obama asked me to come to israel with a very clear message. america's commitment to israel's security is rock solid and unwavering. that is why we believe that it is essential to deescalate the situation in gaza. the rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside gaza on israeli cities an
is asking all parties to show restraint. the president, according to reports, has spoken with mohamed morsi. he's spoken to the israelis. it's in israel's interest. it's in egypt's interest. it's in the united states' interest to tamp this down. it is not, however, in hamas's interest. hamas's entire strategy is to inspire the same kind of revolutionary spirit that brought down mubarak, that threatens to bring down other leaders, particularly in the gulf states, and to use that energy and rage and channel it against israel. it is the kind of unpredictable situation that egypt will have a tough time dealing with right now and it leaves the united states in a very difficult position. you remember, president obama said in that interview with telemundo that he wasn't sure egypt was really even a steadfast ally right now, he said it's not quite an enemy. right now when you have egyptian officials expressing such solidarity with hamas, it's clear to see why the united states had those doubts. >> richard engel in gaza, thanks very much. >>> we are learning more today about september's deadly consu
